Missing IsaacMissing Isaac by Valerie Fraser Luesse

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a good choice if you are looking for a clean, slow, light, and easy read. The Christian elements are not overly thick and there’s no preaching to the reader. The writing and content is clean with no curses or fade-to-black scenes. The overall read is very slow and light. Things seem to mosey along with no hurry or urgency to find anything out. I found the characters, while developed initially, to lose their charm along the way. This is related to a lack of depth in their relationships and reasons for their choices. This is fine for a light slow read but it can become boring for some readers. I found the wrap-up and ending a bit too convenient and felt there was a lack of content related to the historical aspects and setting. Even so, there is promise in the writing for future books and I feel there is a place for this book on the shelf of those who enjoy Christian Fiction. Overall, this is a decent read. I received an ARC through Revell Reads in exchange for an honest review. This is my opinion and it belongs to me.
